Deion Sanders Confirms Colorado Offer, Says There Are Others!
Posted By: Sofía Montiel on November 29, 2022 |
The Colorado Buffaloes head coach opening has been all around the news lately after it was reported that Deion Sanders was not only offered the job, but he apparently has interest.
With the SWAC title game this weekend and Jackson State holding an undefeated record, Sanders acknowledged that he was indeed offered the CU job, according to Kyle T. Mosley of HBCU Legends. So, there you go.
But that isn’t Sanders’ focus, at least for the time being. Instead, he is more concerned about the SWAC title game against Southern on Saturday, per Terrance Harris.
If Sanders does take the job in Boulder, it would be a home run hire for athletic director Rick George after losing Mel Tucker to Michigan State and swinging and missing on the Karl Dorrell hire.
Sanders brings plenty of appeal from a national media perspective and can recruit with the best of them. He even helped switch five-star Travis Hunter from Florida State to Jackson State.
Reports have also surfaced that Colorado could name a head coach by Sunday, one day after the SWAC title game, so the timeline of everything is definitely intriguing. Arizona State, Wisconsin and Nebraska have already hired new head coaches, and now UNLV is open after Marcus Arroyo was fired from his position.
If Sanders doesn’t get hired anywhere this week and the Buffs don’t hire anybody, the dream scenario of Coach Prime coming to Boulder could become a reality.
